How did you do it ?
Off-topic in this thread for installing Mavericks but briefly :
Upgraded Clover.
Made a USB installer with createinstallmedia.
Installed Clover on the USB.
Copied apfs.efi to the USB and the /EFI partition of the HDD.
Copied config.plist and kexts from the HDD to the USB.
Installed.​

Upgraded to the final release of High Sierra through the App Store on release day.

Hello

Question is there any BIOS Updgrade for Core2Duo 6700 ?
I have Bios 1.27 and Microcode Update 1.01 from HP.
Computer Posts 1801 Microcode Update Error ...

Is BIOS 1.27 the same Bios 1.27A you wrote ?

Thanx for your Help ;-)

Regards Vicy

This guide was for Mavericks not High Sierra - Your question is off topic.

I abandoned that DC7900 machine a long time ago. It's was my first experiment with OSX / MacOS, so, unfortunately, I don't have any of the files anymore, plus back then there was no Clover.
